The empress of fitness influencers, Kayla Itsines, has shared the news of her second pregnancy – and fans of Itsines are showering her with well wishes and relishing in excitement in light of new pregnancy workouts.
Itsines is no ordinary fitness bunny either. Described by many as the pioneer of Instagram fitness influencers, the Australian powerhouse made her way to the millionaire’s bracket, selling her empire Sweat for $400 million (R6.7 billion) last year as per Insider.
At 31 years old, Itsines has carried women through many phases of their fitness journeys. She was one of the first to capitalise on the power of social media by sharing her own progress as well as that of her clients – serving as something of a blueprint model for numerous fitness influencers to come. Where would modern-day at-home workouts be without her? With 14.5 million followers, Itsines continues to crack the code on maintaining her brand.
The next chapter for Itsines is one prosed with growing her family. Just a week after announcing her engagement to Jae Woodroffe, she released the news of her pregnancy, naturally, via social media.
“Arna cannot wait to be a big sister,” she commented of her first child, before adding that she and Jae couldn’t be more happy. The couple’s due date is set for January 2023.
As for prenatal workouts, Itsines has given word that she’ll be releasing a few plans in September after some fine-tuning as Shape reports.
” My goal is to support women through this life phase and show them that exercise can be a way to help you maintain strength, general health, and mental well-being throughout pregnancy,” Itsines added.
Another fitness guru in her motherhood era is Elena Pappas Gishen – the founder of BodE.
Gishen gave birth two weeks ago with partner Stephen Gishen, commenting that she is “in awe of her body & what it is capable of” before adding “I gave LIFE!”
